Steven Long wrote a script called GANGSTAS, which is about a corporate street gang in Chicago and the importance of youth making right choices in bad neighborhoods. Part of his outreach has been with staffs of youth social service agencies, two of which are solidly behind supporting the script. One is GRIP Outreach for Youth and the other, Mercy Home for Boys and Girls. It is important to note that both organizations said they see the benefits of the script to help at-risk youth. Mercy Home for Boys and Girls has agreed to host the reading in as the Gangstas script has been read and affirmed by key staff members who see it's accuracy and relevancy. Mentors from GRIP will be reading characters in the script such as Dr. Ulysses Burley who travels the world with the Lutheran Church on HIV/Social Justice issues, and Babatunde Oshinowo, a former Chicago Bear who is an active mentor at GRIP Youth Services. Alongside a host of young talented artists including Booker Vance, Kenwood Academy Senior and National Finalist in the August Wilson Monologue Competition. The reading will be at Mercy Home for Boys and Girls, 1140 W Jackson, on the evening of Thursday, April 23, 2015 at 7pm. For more information regarding the script, please contact Steven Long at email@example.com

New art for D.C. Copeland's Jitterbug! puts the "emphasis on the positive:" use of music in the dancical from the Great American Songbook by songwriters like Harold Arlen, Irving Berlin, Sammy Cahn, Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, George & Ira Gershwin, and Chick Webb. Besides drawing attention to the music, it touches on the uniquely American collaboration of black and white creatives. To learn more, please visit the website. This is only a test.

Theatre Nova deadline: March 31st
Theatre Nova in Ann Arbor, Michigan is a brand new, 501C3 nonprofit theatre launching its first season this year. We focus on new works and most of our season is filled, but another part of our mission is to produce playwrights of color that write stories for actors of color in non-stereotypical roles. This means we do not want to read another play about segregation in the 1960's or another play about Cesar Chavez or another play about 911. We do NOT want actors of color playing drug dealers, criminals, terrorists or slaves. Consider ways in which we can present the experiences of people of color in a way that is universal and speaks about the human condition more than stereotypes or historical conflicts. LGBT characters are greatly appreciated as well.
For this particular submission, we are accepting full-length plays from writers of color (male or female) with strong, three dimensional roles for actors of color (though there can be white characters in the play as well). Think of Gina Rodriguez's golden globe speech "This award represents a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes." Because we are a new theatre, we can have no more than 5 characters in the cast.
Please include in the body of the email:
-A Character Breakdown (include races and ages of characters)
-Brief Description of how this play promotes actors of color in a non-stereotypical manner. As an attachment
-20 page sample of script (any section that shows the best work)
-Full Script (both as separate attachments.
Any submissions that do not follow the requirements above will be discarded. We will only respond if we are interested in pursuing your script. Please do not ask if we received your submission or send any other unsolicited follow through. Email all requirements to RomanTeachesDrama@gmail.com
Thanks to Aurin Squire for this info.
